Hours of labor or months of waiting to meet their little one. Treks across oceans to get to you or c-sections. Late nights, tears, stuffy noses and ear infections. First days of school, broken hearts, homework help and piano lessons. Meal preparations, carpool lines and endless mountains of laundry. Tough love when you came home past curfew and unmatched support as you crossed the finish line…even if you were last. You know what all of these things have in common? Mom. That’s right, the insanely beautiful, perplexing and remarkable existence of Mothers. Adoptive moms, biological moms, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and sometimes even strangers. You see, “Mom” isn’t defined by blood. Choice to love and do what’s best for those in their care and selflessness is what makes you a mom. The mother’s heart has an immense ability to love, nurture and grow others. So today, those of us here at The Cotton Company want to celebrate all moms. Whether you gave birth, adopted or just stepped up when you were needed, we are grateful beyond measure.
We’re not shy when it comes to bragging about our moms, so enjoy the slideshow we’ve put together in an attempt to show an unrequested, but much deserved ‘Thank You’ to these women who run the world. Because let’s face it, folks. Mothers make the world go ’round!
